We are in the top 5% of schools nationwide, rank #845, State rank #134, 16th best magnet in California, Magnet rank #120 which is 5th best in LAUSD, Best High School in the valley~ surpassing all valley charter high schools: Granada Hills HS, El Camino, and Birmingham!

We also ranked ahead of Van Nuys, North Hollywood, Cleveland, Reseda, Taft, CHAMPS, Northridge Academy, Kennedy, Poly, Monroe, Chatsworth, Canoga Park, East Valley, Panorama, San Fernando, Sun Valley, Sylmar, and Grant!

I am very proud of the work my teachers and staff commit every day to the student community at DPMHS! Some of the things we do best are support our students and families through personal connections, recognize student achievement regularly, analyze data and provide interventions promptly, and offer differentiated and rigorous instruction designed to meet the CCSS.

I continue to be so proud of our school!

Best, Deb
